Adult Winter Reading Program set to start at library
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – When it's cold outside, the natural reaction is to stay inside where its warm. For many people, that's also when they curl up with a book.
Rolling Hills Library wants to encourage that behavior with its 2015 Adult Winter Reading Program, which challenges participants to read five books in two months. The payoff – besides the heartwarming experience of reading – is winning prizes, including a Kindle e-reader for one lucky person.
“Warm Up by Reading” is the theme for the program that runs from Jan. 5 to March 5 at both the Belt Branch, 1904 N. Belt, and the Savannah Branch, 514 W. Main, and through the library's bookmobile.
Participants are asked to read five books of their choosing from seven categories and then turn in their reading logs to claim prizes and be entered in the grand prize drawing for the e-reader. The reading categories are mystery, general fiction, biography or non-fiction, children's book, romance, fantasy and new-to-you author. Participants can read from a variety of the categories or stick to just one.
Reading logs will be available at the library beginning Monday, Dec. 29.
Participants who read five books will receive a prize bag and be invited to an end-of-program party where they can enjoy dinner, talk books and win more prizes.
